I end up returning it, due to manufacture’s defect . The sander pad was scratched and had dents in it.
The second is way worse.
More vibration than the first one, and way louder.
I shouldn’t even return it in the first place.
I had $70 to spend, I had a choice should I get the ridgid R2600 or Makita B05030k. I leaned toward to Makita.
It comes with a abrasive disc (#120;794520-1),dust bag(166078-4) and plastic case.
The product description said
“Pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up”
You would have to put it on the wood before spinning at full speed.
When you take it off the work-piece, it starts spinning fast at full 12,000 OPM.
Other people had problems with it that it creates gouges in full power.
But I don’t have any problems with mine.
This is a well made sander and very comfortable in your hand with almost no vibration.
What I like about this sander is, that it shoots dust air into the cloth bag without having any leaks. But The dust port is so small, hooking up a vacuum is more difficult to do.
I have to say this is way quiter than Porter cable 343k sander.
- Comfortable grip
- Stops smoothly
-Dust collection port too small: I don’t think it was designed for connecting to vacuums.
